"your bottom line" starts right now. >> thanks, randi and victor. see you at the top of the hour. good morning, everyone. i'm christine romans. forget the golden globes, disregard the oscars. one script is being written right now in washington that everyone can't wait to see. and you -- you are the only critic that matters. obama's economy, the sequel, crafting a legacy. you remember the original. the president inherits the worst economy since the great depression. billions in bailouts save the auto industry and stabilize wal
presidency. >> that's how the president described the tragedy at sandy hook elementary school. will his legacy call for tougher gun laws? he called to reinstate the assault weapons ban, restrict ammunition magazines to no more than ten rounds and require background checks on all gun purchases. he also signed 23 executive actions. for the first time in years, it looks like gun legislation could happen and that immediacy is turning the fight over the president's plans very personal. he invited four children who wrote him letters, begging for an end to gun violence, invited them to join him at the white house. 8-year-old grant wrote i think there should be some changes in the law with guns. 11-year-old julia wrote even though i am not scared for my own safety, i am scared for others. i have four brothers and sisters. >> these are kids. this is what they're thinking about. and so what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them. >> but the national rifle association, the nra, it got personal, too, releasing a new ad invoking the president's children. >> the president'

have climate now, back on the agenda, the horrific outcome with hurricane sandy has put that back on the agenda. that's number three on his agenda behind i guess immigration and gun stuff. there is an opportunity i think to go back to the table to get business and labor and environmentalists together to figure out a way to put more people to work building clean energy in america, building wind turbines, putting up solar panels, going into biofuels. we can have more work, more jobs, more wealth and better health with a green economy than without one. >> tough thing do with the focus on cutting spending though. >> is there any room there for republicans, erick? >> probably not largely because most of the green jobs program are dependent on the government for existence. the government can't keep pouring money into a lot of these programs. the coal industrial doesn't necessarily depend on lobbyists coming to congress to get carveouts in government. >> let me give you a chance to talk about guns, another issue where the president wants to move in the second term. four months from now,
